Dreams of a Life + Q&A

If you disappeared, would anyone miss you? When Joyce Vincent died in her North London bedsit in 2003, nobody noticed until she was found three years later, surrounded by half-wrapped Christmas presents with the TV still on. This astonishing synthesis of fact and fiction is not only a portrait of Joyce but a portrait of London – the City, music, and race – that propelled Zawe Ashton to fame.

Part of the BFI Black Star season, taking place UK-wide, supported by Film Hub North West Central, part of the Film Audience Network, awarding funds from the National Lottery.
